Church Building

St. Barnabas church is an important local community resource, but for many years, while the focus was on ministry and service within the community, no significant structural repairs were undertaken. It is now necessary to undertake major restoration and development. This is being done in 4 Phases. Phase 1 (high-level work at the east end, re-roofing of chancel and vestry, and new rainwater goods) was successfully completed in August 2011, and Phase 2 (stone and brickwork at the west end, re-roofing south aisle, gutter and brickwork repairs on south side) is nearing completion. Fundraising for Phase 3 (nave and north aisle roof, gutters and gulley, brickwork and buttresses on north side,and lightning conductor) is in hand. This phase will cost 
c. 310,000.

Meanwhile internal work is needed, especially on toilets and entrance, to ensure the building functions properly as the multi-use community space it now is, at the same time maintaining the beauty of the interior and its distinctive identity as a place of Christian worship.

We look to the Lord, from whom all good things come, confident that the necessary resources will be found, and glad to do what we can to ensure that the fine building we have been entrusted with will continue to offer glory to God and service to the community for years to come. THANK YOU to all for your support. God bless you.
